Via press release, NBC says this strategy allows for "a sendoff that will maximize the show's cultural impact," though some fans have responded to the news by wondering why NBC would burn off the final season of Parks and Recreation.

But whatever.

We should just be thankful there actually is a Parks and Recreation Season 7 to burn off, considering the state of this show's ratings over the years.

And in related exciting news that has us LITCHerally more psyched than we've ever been in our lives... Rob Lowe and Rashida Jones will return for an episode!
